According to my opinion Security cameras are a must for each and every locality but nowadays people are not taking interest in maintaining these surveillance cameras because of this poor maintenance it is becoming a great path for crimes and because of our negligence, it became a great strength for hackers.

So finally surveillance cameras and privacy are a probability.

Hello, everyone, I agree with all of you, as the camera is very good for security purposes, but it should not disturb someone's privacy. Like having it in public places as in banks, around ATM's, around parking spaces, near jeweller's shop where the possibility of stealing are more. Even on the traffic signals, on the road where chances of criminal activities are more, we should also put the camera there for security purposes. It also helps police, crime branches to investigate further for a case as it captures and records everything.

As every coin has two sides. We can not ignore its disadvantages also. Like having a camera in the hotel's room, trials room affects someone's personal space. Some people also record someone's private videos and captures picture also and blackmail them it. So we should keep above points in mind as should use camera and security beneficially.

So I conclude my answer by, "security is very much important, but should not disturb person's personal space".

Hello everyone. I think the topic is quite sensitive and debate. Privacy is a major concern in everyone's life. Every person has their own curtain of personal things which is hidden from everyone. On the other hand, security is also a key factor that everyone wants. Balancing these two is a little difficult. Coming to our topic a question raises. Are only the security cameras provide security. There are many cases where a flaw has happened in the presence of cameras. So keeping the security cameras don't provide security. Living in a secured fashion and letting others to live in a secured way is one's own responsibility. Focusing on private security cameras if kept in places such as traffic signals, malls, theatres everywhere in the public where the privacy of people not get disturbed is not a bad trail. For instance, in a shopping complex if you keep the camera in trail room it disturbs the privacy of the customer. Doing good is not bad. But doing it in the right way fulfils it purpose.

Hi, I am Tejas. Talking about this topic. First I would like to tell you that I have read all the opinion and views of different people given as follows. The most common thing was that everyone speak was quite same. That was every coin has two sides. I too believe, sometimes positive approach or negative approach comes on to result. So, here the question arises which is favourable for us. Sometimes privacy is a must. I think cameras must be in public places. Because there is no need of privacy. Now again the question of privacy arises. So we can identify the water kept in front of us is cold or hot but not by seeing but by touching it. So we must examine at the private place is there any camera or something else. Like in hotels, toilets etc. You can search for some examination tips on net.

According to me, a security camera is useful in some certain places likewise in some of the public sectors but not in private sectors like IT sectors, restaurants, etc. , nowadays we are seeing there are many places where security cameras are been placed in lifts or elevators which is totally wrong. I mean what offense a person can commit in an elevator? hardly an elevator gets stuck for 5 to 10secs in each floor.

Hello friends, in my opinion, security cameras are essential for some places like a bank, atm, traffic control, railway station, main bus stand in defence, for safety & security purposes. It helps in catching the thief, corrupted people and stop many illegal activities. It also creates a fear in people to do wrong things. When we talk about our defence forces and our space centre like ISRO, then the privacy of them should be very strong so that no one can hack our important data. And it is improved by ethical hacking.

On other side, if I talk about disadvantages of it, then it can be used for wrong purposes too.

Like many bad people use it in changing room, toilets, hotel rooms etc. Some people use it for blackmailing by record our private activities. So to prevent this government should take an appropriate step and make a rule that only authorized person can buy it.

One more point I want to add that, instead of installing security camera every place like shop, school, college. We should install some good habits as well as well discipline in ourselves. So that we can save money of security cameras.

I feel that security cameras are indeed an invasion in our privacy, nowadays they are being installed everywhere from public places to offices and schools thus resulting negatively also the constant feeling of being watched by someone is not very comforting and makes one nervous and force them to change their habits as well as prohibits them to work in a free environment without any kind of tension or nervousness. Also, the basic reason of installation of such cameras that is security is not being fulfilled as there are so many ways to manipulate it and escape coming in front of it. The Biggest example of it is killing of Osama bin Laaden by us forces as do any of you think there would have been no security cameras at the place where such a big terrorist was living still the forces escaped them!

Hi friends, this is Aditi, I'm also in the favor of there should be cameras in the workplaces, in the common places, and also on the streets for the security purpose, not only for women but for every human being.

Nowadays, many criminal activities are happening around us. Recently we heard that a lady employee got killed by someone in Infosys. So, if cameras are situated in workplaces or in public places, then we could keep watch on that, and criminal activities may be controlled.

There are some TV shows like crime diary, crime petrol which also aware us, and shows us that many criminal activities caught by cameras.

So in my point of view, there should be cameras in work places.

Since women safety is much highlighted now-a-days security cameras help in promoting that. It avoids immoral behaviour of a person.

Nowadays we can see security cameras at every place like banks, ATM, shops and I think they are very important for security,

A Shop owner can keep eye on his whole shop just by sitting at one place. Security cameras also help in an investigation of crimes and many times it has helped to catch the criminals.

And I don't think this raises any question of privacy because all the security cameras are present in public places, so this does not invade anyone's privacy.

Hello friends, I'm agreed with your opinion.

But in my point of view, every coin has two sides. Nowadays security camera does a great job. It helps police to find criminals and thief. Security cameras are mainly placed at ATM center, mall, public sector and many places.

There are many people, they are illegally using security camera in mall in the changing room, in mirror. This is the biggest disadvantage of security camera. So that to avoid this types of thing government should make rule that only authorized people will get security camera.

According to me, security cameras play an important role nowadays for the purpose of security. It helps to find any crime occurred in any field. Security cameras are very important in ATM, Banks, mall, shops, jewelry shop, police station, government office, also in our private office, our own shops, etc. Security cameras are the best way to identify an identity in case of crime.

Security cameras may not prevent the crime on the spot, but they can help the police to identify the criminals. Sometimes it can be a strong evidence like in the cases of kidnaps. It is also useful in organizations so that employees are aware of they are being watched so that they can work without wasting more time in break times. THis makes more discipline.

Hi friends. I agree my friends view that based on the place security cameras should be used. But sometimes these cameras are very helpful for finding the fact about any incident as the cases of robbery are increasing highly. But in some of the places cameras are being misused. A few days ago many cases were found in which hidden cameras were used in changing room in some of the shops. So such people should be punished. Otherwise in public places security cameras are helpful and sometimes necessary also.

It is sure that security cameras broken our privacy. But we think about the present situations, we can understand the need of security camera. There is a great chance to the presence of a terrorists in railway station, airport etc. By using security camera we can prevent such security problems. Our nations safe was more important than that of our privacy. In other places such as shops, it is very useful to find criminals. So in my opinion security cameras are more useful.

Yes. Security Camera plays a vital role. These Cameras are capturing what's going on, at that particular location. If we are using these Cameras, there is no chance to do more mistakes. We use Cameras also, some places happen mistakes. That's not small mistakes, i.e., murders.
If we use Camera, we easily find out where is the corruption happening? where is the murders happening and so many things we know easily and punish that person also. That's help to remaining criminals also want to do like that, but they have the fear to do like that...

According to my point of view, security cameras are one of the best solution to protect terrerism and in a shop or factories, it is very useful for avoiding theft. In india there are few companies and offices have been using this system, It can be apply in all the offices and the companies.

Security camera's are the best solution for avoiding any crisis or crime before it takes place, we have to be advanced and stick to high technologies to be secure or otherwise these security camera's are of no use. Security camera's should be hidden and it should be kept secret in area's where it is very important. We have a look at the countries which follow a system in developing security of their country, they have security camera's at each and every corner and they been directly seen by the officers to avoid crime. The reason why it is not applied in INDIA is because of the fear by politicians of being caught.

Security cameras are very helpful. Sitting at a one place you can see what is going on in place where you are using it. Because of these banks ATM and other things are safe, if they get damaged you can see who has done it. There use be must at petrol pumps and other places where security people can't stay for full day and night.

Because of these your privacy do not remains your privacy. Sometimes they can be present at a place you can't think. They can be in hotel rooms, paying guest rooms and in malls trails rooms for recording your activities and for making them publicly.

According to my view, security cameras are not needed. Because it causes irritation when we know that somebody is watching us. So we cannot concentrate on our work fully. It makes us feel,that they dont trust us... so we cannot involve ourselves in what we are doing....

Only if the cameras are under proper surveillance, will they be useful.. there should be someone to constantly monitor things live. It may sound silly because may be crimes don't happen everyday but no one alerts us before one happens so monitoring it all the time is essential..

If such monitoring takes place then security cameras serve the purpose, else it is just a so called means of security.. it does invade privacy and also doesn't serve the purpose if not kept under constant surveillance..

I feel security cameras should be placed in appropriate places like crowded malls, busy streets, and terrorist prompt places. but the cameras should surveillance with proper security.. moreover as terrorist attacks is increasing day by day the importance of such cameras is coming to picture. By keeping such cameras our privacy is not at all getting affected. Its all for our own security..

Nowadays every where we are seeing activities like stealing, robbing etc, so i think more or less security cameras will be definitely helpful. Even the existence of such cameras will make a thief mentally week and may do mistake, eventually will be caught.

But what i feel is cameras should be used in places where that are necessary, but in places like trial rooms will ultimately cause severe problems than to solve problems,and in the places like office it's not required, because people cant give 100% when they are under observation.

Securiy cameras are useful in public places like railway stations, bus stations, ..etc. But they are not useful for immediate action, they are used after any crime happens for investigation purpose. But keeping eyewatch every where especially in some privacy places is not reasonable.

Security cameras are good but they has to be viewed each and every minute of the day.If somebody does a crime we come to know after crime and most of the times we cant recognize face of the person and we are unable to get the person. Thus even security cameras are there one can do anything taking precaution to hide the face in proper way..

In my point of view Security Cameras must be available only in the place where it is needed... Hope you know the myriad of activities that go on in a large metropolis. Hidden Camera Detector technology has improved over time just like cameras so you can easily protect yourself from having your privacy invaded.

This should be something you think about whenever you use a public restroom, changing or locker room since a video of that event could wind up on the internet being viewed by thousands of perverts for years to come. And ofcourse for womens it is acting like a bad watchmen apart from the real men.

I feel security cameras are unavoidable especially at social places espacially at the places which are under strict terrorist survelliance. When there is tight security den it creates a fear among criminals and thus control crime. However loose security boost confidence among criminals. So security cameras are great help bt should be used depending upon the profile.

Security cameras cannot prevent any crime. All it can help is to find out the culprit long after the damage has already taken place. Many a times, the faces of the person cannot be even identified using such cameras. Moreover, it requires maintenance and storage.
There is no mean to ensure that such a camera will not malfunction or cannot be damaged by the criminals. It is not even considered as concrete proof in court.
